The Island Church Gets A Name and A Sign

Hello, this is Dennis and I have one last post about Oaxaca and the island before our summer begins. We went back to the island this past week to have another special service. Roger & Dale (Dale Achey, Open Heart Ministry – Reynosa, MX) flew into Puebla and took a bus to Tierra Blanca, Veracruz where we picked them up. From there we headed to the island. Meanwhile Pascual & Areli had a guy in Tuxtepec make us a big metal sign for the church on the island. We all joined up on the island on Monday, May 15 and we put up the sign. The guy did a fantastic job painting it. It has the name of the church in Mazateco and Spanish and you can see that in the pictures. The name translates to “The Voice That Calls Out” or “Cries Out” and it comes from Matthew 3:3 (The voice of one calling in the wilderness). We had a special church service that afternoon and we dedicated the church. Afterward we had another tamale feast. The next day we went up to the top of the mountain to have our usual Tuesday afternoon service up there at Javier’s house. While we were up there we also bought another property and we are going to start construction on another church. Our church congregation up there has been growing faster than the one down below and God opened a door for this very quickly.

 

 

     After all that, on Wednesday we all left the island and started our trek back north. Right now we are all in Doctor Arroyo getting ready for our first summer mission team coming next Saturday. I will continue posting photos & newsletters on our DMT & Doctor Arroyo Facebook pages, but I’m going to let Arely take care of the island one for now, since we’re not there for a while. We will be back down there at the end of July with our final mission team for this summer from Seattle, WA and I will post about that on the island page, but until then it’ll be Arely.

 

     Thanks for following us here and remember you can see more pictures and newsletters on our Facebook pages at Dayspring Outreach Ministries; Dayspring Missionary Training; Isla Soyaltepec Dayspring Mission; Dayspring Outreach in Dr Arroyo. Also, don’t forget David & Cristina at the orphanage. Cristina posts newsletters and pictures pretty often on the Dayspring orphanage Facebook page and you can check that out at Casa Dayspring.

Dios les bendiga
Dennis
